File:Stoppie 180.jpg

The stoppie, is a motorcycle and bicycle trick in which the back wheel is lifted and the bike is ridden on the front wheel by carefully applying brake pressure. It is also sometimes called a front wheelie or wikang (wheelie belakang) in Malaysia. Stoppies are sometimes called endos, but an endo is a type of crash, more often called a highsider, where the rider is thrown over the handlebars and front wheel; endo is short for end over end. So a stoppie that goes out of control can turn into an endo or highsider.[1]

General descriptionEdit

The trick is performed by progressively engaging the front brake and leaning forward. The rider then tries to balance by shifting their weight and keeping the rear wheel as high as possible. If the bicycle rider does not have a front brake, then experienced riders may jam a foot in between the tire and front fork while pushing forward. Stoppies can also be accomplished without front brakes with the aid of a roadside curb. NB: If the bike's wheels are 24" or larger they will normally mount the curb instead of being stopped by it.
